Turning cooler for Halloween Weekend with a mixed weather in store - 29th October 2021

After a mild and wet week so far, it’ll turn cooler and drier over the first half of Halloween weekend, followed by some wet and windy weather on Sunday.

Commenting on the weather over Halloween weekend, Met Éireann meteorologist Aoife Kealy said: “Today (Friday 29th) will see a mix of bright spells and scattered showers, these will be heaviest and most frequent across western areas with brighter and drier weather across the eastern half of the country.  Tomorrow (Saturday 30th) will be a bright day with good sunny spells and plenty of dry weather and just a few light showers.”

 “However, through Saturday night it’ll turn wet and blustery as a low pressure moves close to Ireland.”  Aoife continued: “It’ll stay unsettled on Sunday with some heavy showers or longer spells of rain around – and it’ll be a windy day too which could blow away a few witch’s hats!”

 As we head into the start of November it’ll feel chillier than recent weeks with much more seasonal temperatures of around 8 to 10 Celsius and the chance of frosts increasing as temperatures overnight fall close to freezing.
